Get Free Beer for Cig butts & Bottle Caps

After a research by Anglia Ruskin University revealed cigarettes are more damaging to the environment than plastic straws, a bar in Barcelona is taking drastic measures. The study reveals drastic impacts on plant growth where butts are found in the soil and, since Cigarette litter is a major problem on beaches, water pollution concerns. Just one cigarette butt can pollute 3 litres of water, and the contamination can take between five and 20 years to dissipate. Marine life is also known to mistake them for food.
Tackling the issue head-on, Tibu-Ron Group, which operates several beach bars in Barcelona, is handing out free beer and soft drinks to consumers who collect a pint of cigarette butts from the surrounding area joining Zanzibar on Baga Beach, Goa, who started offering free beer to patrons who came to the premises with old cigarettes and bottle caps in February this year.
